UH OH: Trump says he’s now taking on 3-D printed guns!

A short while ago Trump tweeted that he’s now investigating the sale of 3-D printed guns and he’s already talked to the NRA about it:

I’m not sure what Trump is being told, but this isn’t really the big issue surrounding 3-D printed guns. I guess it’s entirely possible that they are being sold somewhere, but the real issue for gun-controllers is that their blueprints are online so that any hobbyist can download them and make their own guns:

Which makes this a 1st amendment issue, not a 2nd amendment issue.

So I’m not sure what Trump is doing here, but I guess we’ll find out.

Here’s a great Twitter thread on 3-D printed guns and the real issues with them:

Gutowski says he’s got a comment request into the NRA about Trump’s confusing tweet this morning. I’ll let you know if he posts a substantive comment from them on the issue.
